Members of the Eisdell Moore Centre, with support from the Ministries of Education and Health and the New Zealand Audiological Society have been working hard over the last couple of years to develop New Zealand Guidelines for Auditory Processing Disorders (APD). These guidelines provide evidence-based, practical guidance for clinicians and education personnel providing APD services, as well as providing information for the wider community involved with people with APD.
The Eisdell Moore Centre is very pleased to be hosting the launch of these guidelines in conjunction with the New Zealand Audiological Society who will be publishing the guidelines.
